When You Think You’re In The Wrong Job
Whilst we all like to believe that one day we will somehow win the lottery, stumble upon an unattended suitcase full of the monies or have a long-lost relative sadly pass and have no-one to bestow their vast fortune on, this isn’t particularly realistic. And so when it comes to choosing a career, it can be all too easy to get hooked on doing it just for the money. At the beginning, you think ‘I can get through this’, and you do. You get up, you spend the majority of your working hours during the week doing something you don’t like, just because it pays a bit more than that creative job you REALLY wanted. Many of our clients take note from our companions, who do what they love and love what they do. They don’t force themselves to sit, chained to a desk, whilst the whole world rushes by. They aren’t boring their friends to tears with stories about how you spent ten minutes arguing with Pat from accounts about never refilling the stapler when she’s done. Life is too short to spend it doing something that you’re not ridiculously passionate about. Something that when you wake up in the morning, you do so with a huge smile on your face because of the numerous possibilities the day could bring.
Make Your Own Soundtrack
Of course, life isn’t like a movie. There is no catchy soundtrack playing in the background for when you need to have a bit of self-assurance (if possible, timed with the step from the tube to the platform can create quite a dramatic start to the day). There is no uplifting tunes for when you successfully nail that account, for when you meet your deadline with several minutes to spare, or your boss lets you go early on a Friday. You have to make your own soundtrack, and we don’t mean spending hours on ‘playlists’ on iTunes. We mean doing the things that make you happy, that make you smile, that encourage you to live life to the fullest – in the way it was intended. It’s not normal to be sad everyday, to not want to get out of bed everyday, to feel like you’re wasting your life away. Which is why you absolutely should not.
Things Need To Change
If you’ve been eyeing up a new career, go for it. If you’ve always wondered what it would be like to relax in the company of a blonde escort, or perhaps a brunette is more your style, do it. If you’ve always wanted to be completely honest with yourself, to not let anybody else’s emotions or feelings override your own, then you have that white wine and ditch the Guinness. If your friends are going to judge you on it, they’re not your friends.
